A PREFATORY NOTE 



This Survey of Art in San Francisco was initially issued 
in 1953 as a companion work to an inventory, made by the 
Art Commission, to determine if the City had usable works 
of art in storage. The edition was limited to one hun- 
dred copies which were distributed to various public 
agencies . 

In the intervening years, numerous requests for copies 
of the survey have been received, and with the increased 
use of art in public and private buildings, it seemed 
an appropriate time to update and reissue the survey. 
This edition was made possible through financing by the 
Bicentennial Fund, created and administered by the Mayor's 
Office for the publication of historical material. 

The Survey reveals changing attitudes in our society - 
at least that of San Francisco; attitudes that find 
their reflection not only in form of expression, but in 
patronage as well . 

For example, in the period 1879 - 1929, no less than 24 
works were commissioned by private benefactors. (The 
earliest monument still standing is that of Benjamin 
Franklin, placed in 1879.) The most recent work commis- 
sioned by an individual is that of John McLaren, ordered 
by Mr. A. B. Spreckels in 1944. In the period 1929 - 
1944, eight public works were donated by private indivi- 
duals, of which only two were actually commissioned -- 
the other six being existing works of art offered to the 
city as gifts. And finally, it is to be noted that in 
the past thirty years, none have been commissioned by a 
private person. 

As to public participation in the acquisition of monu- 
ments or memorials; eight were acquired by means of 
public subscription in the period 1901 - 1920, of which 
one was by school children (1917) . In the next twenty 
years, only three were obtained by that means, and none 
since 1938. 

It appears then, that there has been a turning away from 
art as a public gesture as other needs - health, educa- 
tion and various social programs became the recipients 
of private benefaction. Commemorative monuments and me- 
morials no longer seem fashionable or of interest to the 
public. No monument, for example, has been erected to 
World War II, probably the major social experience of 
our recent generations. (Nor has a song emanated from 
that source either, as did "Medemoiselle from Armentiers" 
in World War I.) We do have sculptured plaques, but of 
the large scale public monuments, none -- nor even the 
erecting of public gateways that once seemed desirable. 

Perhaps, contemporary abstract sculptural expression does 
not lend itself to public statements, and perhaps because 
it is more expressive of the individual sculptor and less 
so as a reflection of public sentiment -- it has failed 
to awaken sponsorship. But, for whatever reason, we note 
the decline. 



A major positive change, however, is in the area of cor- 
porate and governmental support. Government, as a sig- 
nificant patron of the Arts, received its initial thrust 
in the Thirties, with the emergence of the Works Project 
Administration art program. Apart from a few major civic 
structures, such as the City Hall or Public Library, our 
local government did little - that is until 1967. In 
that year, the 2% ordinance (providing up to 2% of the 
cost of construction for the enrichment of public build- 
ings) was enacted by the Board of Supervisors with the 
approval of the Mayor. In the seven years since - almost 
every public building has had an allotment for works of 
art — our medical facilities, schools and even our phy- 
sical plants. (A notable exception, unfortunately, and 
despite the Art Commission's best efforts, has been the 
airport - a major construction project and our principal 
gateway.) The City of San Francisco has become a major 
patron of the arts. 

Since the 1950 's the greater part of the private struc- 
tures erected in San Francisco have utilized some form 
of art. Office buildings, apartment houses and hotels 
have been enhanced inside and out with sculpture, foun- 
tains and paintings. We also see an expanded and inno- 
vative use of art media - stained glass, tapestries, 
mosaic, and plastics. The free and imaginative use of 
materials has given a new dimension and vitality to pub- 
lic works of art. And finally, while the placement of 
public monuments in important and strategic locations 
has declined, the broad use of art - spread throughout 
the city, and in more intimate locations and surroundings, 
has emerged. Art has become an environmental factor. 

Our intent has been to bring all works of art on public 
display within the scope of the Survey. We have not 
culled the best, nor judged their merits, but we have 
not included pieces that are reproductions (such as the 
figure of Washington in the lobby of the Veterans Build- 
ing) nor have we entered those works that are not readily 
accessible to the public - such as Diego Rivera's mural 
in the Stock Exchange Club. 

I appreciate the research undertaken by Joyce Konigsberg 
in updating the survey with works installed during the 
past twenty years, and Joan Ellison for her patience, 
advice and contribution in editing and preparing the do- 
cuments and indexes; Bill Roddy, the Public Service Direc- 
tor for his cooperation and assistance in making the re- 
issuance of the Survey possible, and Elio Benvenuto as a 
ready source of information.
